4 Ways to Reduce Seasonal Allergies in the Workplace

Thursday 11th May 2017

Ahhh, springtime! The birds are chirping, the trees are budding, and the flowers are finally starting to bloom. Unfortunately, along with the many blessings of spring comes the curse of seasonal allergies.  Before you run out and stock up on tissues, here are four ways your business can reduce seasonal allergies in the workplace.

The Cost of Seasonal Allergies in the Workplace

If you’re a business owner, seasonal allergies are nothing to sneeze at. According to the Allergy and Asthma Foundation of America, approximately 50 million Americans suffer from seasonal allergies. The average worker with allergies misses about one hour per week over the course of a year and that sick time is concentrated during the peak allergy periods of spring, summer, and early fall. Seasonal allergies don’t just increase employee absenteeism; they also decrease employee productivity. A 2001 study found that when pollen counts spiked, productivity among workers with allergies decreased by as much as 10 percent!

Reducing Seasonal Allergies in the Workplace

Here are four things your business can do to reduce seasonal allergies in the workplace:

  1. Make sure you have good air filtration. Seasonal allergens like pollen enter the workplace through ventilation, and open doors and windows. Be sure to regularly monitor and change your air filters and properly maintain your heating and air conditioning systems at least twice a year.
  2. Tidy up your space. Encourage employees to keep their work space neat and clutter-free. Excess clutter and paper can attract dust and increase allergies in the workplace.
  3. Do away with the dust. During the warmer months, the dust from pollen and other allergens very quickly accumulates on desks, tables, filing cabinets, and more. Hiring a commercial cleaning company like NH Cleaning Services will help your business keep dust under control.
  4. Keep your floors and carpeting clean. All summer long, your employees and customers track allergens like pollen and even pesticides into the workplace. Your floors and carpeting should be regularly swept, vacuumed, and steam cleaned by a commercial cleaning company to remove dust, germs, and bacteria.

Friday 21st April 2017

New Hampshire winters can do a number on your business—especially your floors and carpeting. It’s time to get your commercial floors and carpeting cleaned and ready for spring!

Commercial Cleaning for Hardwood, Ceramic, Marble, and Tile Flooring in NH

The sand, salt, slush, and snow your customers and employees tracked in over the past several months can make your floors appear dull and worn. The professionals at NH Cleaning Services can help maintain and improve the appearance of your hardwood, ceramic, marble, or tile floors. After a deep cleaning,  a commercial polishing will give your floors a clean, impressive shine. A commercial cleaning and polishing not only makes your business look great, but also extends the life of your floors.

Professional Carpet Cleaning Services in NH

Carpeting can really take a beating during the winter months. A professional carpet cleaning will help remove any ground in salt and sand and eliminate stains, odors, and bacteria. It also helps to fluff up carpet fibers, which can become matted down from winter foot traffic. 

Protecting Your Commercial Floors and Carpet

Keeping your commercial floors and carpeting clean and well-maintained is good for business. When your floors are clean, it suggests that you really care about your business, customers, and employees. It is also essential for protecting your investment. By having a commercial cleaning company provide ongoing cleaning and maintenance, you will extend the life of your floors and carpeting.

The Importance of Cleanliness in Business

Wednesday 22nd February 2017
image

When it comes to running a business, first impressions count. And these impressions are formed the moment your clients and customers walk through your door—literally.  A clean front entrance, crystal clear windows, and even a well-maintained welcome mat can draw people in and make them feel comfortable in your space. But the impressions don’t stop there. From the waiting room, to the bathroom, to the conference room—never underestimate the importance of cleanliness in business.

Cleanliness and Customer Comfort

Your customers can tell how well your space is maintained almost immediately upon entering, and it affects their overall comfort level. Our senses are keen to certain details, whether consciously or subconsciously. Our eyes pick up on whether or not the carpet is clean and the shelves have been dusted. Our noses can detect how recently something has been vacuumed or if there’s been any deep cleaning in the restroom.

While employees might become accustomed to the way an office or building is maintained, a customer’s fresh set of senses hasn’t gotten used to your space. Ask yourself, If I were a new customer here, would I feel welcome and comfortable? What detail—good or bad—would you detect? Start there to determine whether your level of cleanliness is affecting your customers’ comfort

Cleanliness and Employee Health

Keeping your building clean isn’t just about making a good impression on customers; your employees need a clean working space to remain healthy. Sometimes the little things we so easily overlook cause the biggest issues. Consider the spaces that tend to be the most frequently used and contaminated:

  • vending machine buttons
  • door handles
  • bathrooms
  • sinks
  • break room refrigerator handles

Cleanliness and Employee Productivity

A clean work environment helps employees be more productive by:

  • reducing the number of sick days
  • improving employee well-being
  • enhancing overall employee satisfaction with the workplace

And happy, healthy employees will have a positive effect on customers.

Commercial Cleaning Services in NH

At NH Cleaning Services, we focus on even the smallest cleaning details so your business always looks great and your employees can focus on serving your customers. From daily office cleaning and janitorial services, to deep carpet cleaning, to floor stripping and waxing, the experts at NH Cleaning Services will make your business shine.

Why a Clean Restroom is Good for Business

Thursday 26th January 2017

Uggh. The restroom. No one wants to maintain it, but everyone–including your employees and customers–expects and deserves to use a clean one. A clean commercial restroom keeps everyone healthier—and it’s good for business.

Making a Good Impression on Your Customers

Depending on its location, your restroom may be visited by hundreds or even thousands of people. Even if only a few dozen people use your restroom, it’s important to keep it clean from top to bottom. Why? Because image is everything!

How clean you keep your restroom says a lot about your business, including how you care for your customers. And according to a recent article from Chron.com, a clean bathroom can make or break a customer service experience if your company is in the hospitality or service industry. 

This is especially true for restaurants. Naturally, most people equate the cleanliness of your restroom with the cleanliness of your kitchen. According a recent industry study, 75 percent of U.S. adults wouldn’t return to a restaurant with a dirty restroom. Thus, a clean restroom can lead to repeat business and higher earnings. Regardless of your industry, how clean you keep your restroom will directly impact your ability to attract and retain customers.

image

Caring for Your Employees

A clean restroom is also good for office morale and overall productivity. Employees spend almost half of their day at the workplace and shouldn’t be expected to use a dirty restroom or help maintain it. If not cleaned properly, a restroom can be a breeding ground for bacteria, and disease-causing molds and allergens. Unfortunately, once an employee is sick, disease quickly spreads, especially during the winter months. Hiring a commercial cleaning service will help reduce germs and bacteria, essential for a healthy workplace.

Routine Maintenance is Key

Most businesses don’t have the personnel, equipment, or expertise to properly manage this important, but often overlooked function. A professional commercial cleaning company can help keep your restroom clean from top to bottom, allowing you to take care of your customers.

To reduce bacteria and odor and keep a clean, functional appearance, commercial restrooms should be regularly maintained by:

  • using eco-friendly solutions to eliminate the presence of bacteria growing on sinks, counters, toilets, and door handles;
  • cleaning dust and debris from hard-to-reach areas (behind toilets, underneath sinks, and on the sills of high windows);
  • sweeping and washing floors;
  • emptying trash cans and other receptacles; and
  • refilling soap, toilet paper, and paper towel dispensers. (Is there anything more irritating than using a restroom that’s run out of these supplies?).

Commercial Cleaning Services in NH

Your customers may not notice when your restroom is clean, but they will surely notice when it’s not. The experts at NH Cleaning Services are here to help you clean and maintain your restrooms so you and your employees can focus on your business. Want to make your business shine? Contact us today.

The After Party: Cleaning Up Holiday Parties

Tuesday 20th December 2016
image

The holiday season is synonymous with parties; it wouldn’t feel right without the chance to get together with co-workers and friends to celebrate another year gone by. Christmas parties are often looked forward to all year, at least by those who simply get to attend! There are a lot of details that go into the planning of our holiday celebrations which can be easy to overlook by party-goers, but the ones in charge of the behind-the-scenes have a lot to think about. You can’t be too careful when it comes to preparations for before and after the holiday celebrations!

Preparing for Your Party

Whenever you extend an invitation to a lot of people at once, at an office or a business for instance, there’s always a bit of a gamble as to how many people will show up. Significant others and family members may or may not be included in the invite, which could mean a lot more foot traffic than your location is used to.

Make sure to have your event space prepped and ready to go.

  • Have the floors cleaned and polished to protect the surface!
  • Make sure any spaces that are usually neglected get the attention they need.
  • Consider getting carpets or runners where foot traffic might be a little heavier.

Think about the layout for the event: Where will people be entering? Where will they be spending most of their time? Consider where drinks and food will be served, and if there will be areas that need extra protection for foot traffic, sliding chairs, and other situations that may not be normal for your space. Having a professional on hand to help you prepare might be the best bet for making your party a huge success!

Cleaning Up After the Event

We’ve all seen the chaos that can remain after the party ends. It can be a little overwhelming to turn on all of the lights and see what’s left of the festivities! It takes a little extra effort to make sure that your office or venue is put back together and ready for normal business to resume. Taking the time to deep clean and prepare for the next few weeks of “business as usual” can help get your employees back into a work place mindset.

Party Clean Up Professionals

It’s never fun to be the one who has to clean up after the festivities. Getting an extra set of hands to help might be the best holiday gift you can give to your business. NH Cleaning Services offers a variety of services to help get your business back into pristine shape after your holiday celebrations. Contact us, and let us help your party be a huge success, before and after!

Protecting Your Floors in the NH Winter

Tuesday 22nd November 2016
image

Ah, Winter… the season people either love or hate. With the cold, the snow, and everything that comes with it, it’s easy to understand why. It takes a little extra care when heading out the door, and a little more time to unwrap once you get inside. Because of the many people who will be coming through your doors with snow, sand, and salt clinging to their shoes, now is the perfect time to think about protecting your floors from the damage that winter can bring.

Avoiding Damage to Your Floor’s Protective Coating

Once all of that fresh snow is shoveled out of the way, salt and sand are thrown down to keep roads and sidewalks safe. But these elements were never meant to be spread onto wooden floors, tiles, or carpets. Because your floors are quickly damaged by the coarseness of these elements, upkeep of their protective coating is essential.

  • Using a bristly mat right at the entrance of your business door will help customers remove most of what they could bring inside.
  • Placing floor mats in high traffic areas is also a good idea.
  • Proper cleaning and preventative measures can help keep surface damage to a minimum as the season goes on.
  • Removing salt and sand quickly and frequently will extend the life of your wood or tile flooring.
image

Caring for Inevitable Floor Damage

Some damage is inevitable, especially if there are a lot of people coming through your doors.

Tiles

Making sure you have the proper upkeep of the surface protectants will help you save money in the long run. Scheduling a professional buffing to take care of minor scratches and resealing or waxing your floors will keep your business looking beautiful.

Carpets

Salt and sand accumulate quickly into carpets. The fibers of your carpet break down and become dull if elements are left in them for too long. Grains of sand and melted salt are quickly absorbed into carpets, and a simple vacuuming isn’t always good enough. Invest in a quality carpet cleaning. Hot water extraction can remove all of the elements that are below the surface, and keep your carpet looking new. 

Keeping your floors clean also improves the air quality of your business, as leaving damp salt and sand in the fibers of carpeting can be the perfect place for bacteria and mold to grow on a microscopic level. Simple and consistent cleaning prevents the negative effects of winter on your carpet investment.

NHCS serves in a 30 mile radius of Manchester, NH. Within that fairly small area, we’ve helped many businesses get their doors back open and buzzing after a large construction project.

  • Rite-Aids. We’ve helped several Rite-Aid buildings open their doors when they decided the customers would be better served with an improved store layout.
  • Apartment complexes. With building requirements needing frequent updates, our teams have helped landlords keep their apartments up to date and appealing to an increasingly demanding customer base.
  • Merrimack Premium Outlets. When the store looks good, customers can focus on finding great deals. We’ve helped the Merrimack Premium Outlets keep their stores shining so shoppers can find what they’re looking for.
  • Car Dealerships. The cleaner a business is, the more professional and calming the atmosphere is for their consumers. Several car dealerships have used our specialized cleaning services, keeping their showrooms spotless and stress free for the customers who are making a big investment.
  • NH Liquor Stores. There’s no project too small for NHCS, because we know small businesses are just as important as the big ones. Several liquor stores have used our services to keep their storefronts welcoming and inviting to their customers.

Both customers and employees deserve to step back into a professional space that is ready to do business again.

HEPA Filters: #1 Industry Rated Vacuum Cleaners

Friday 16th September 2016
image

Over the last several years, the technology used in industrial cleaning has taken huge steps forward. Air quality and filtration has become a priority in the manufacturing of efficient vacuums.

The term HEPA gets tossed around in the cleaning industry, and it stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air. But what does that mean for the customer? And why is that something you should look for in your cleaning services? Let’s clear the air a bit.

What’s Special About HEPA Filtration?

In HEPA filters, glass fibers separate the particles that pollute the air and make it healthier to breathe. Several processes help the filter trap nearly 99.9% of airborne particles that cause irritations and contamination; dust, pollen, mildew and other small objects that can cause harm are captured and removed from the air.

image

There are different types and variations of HEPA vacuums available, so it’s important to know the people you hire and the equipment that they use. Every space is different and not all spaces require the same intensity of cleaning, so it pays to know your facts, and to ask questions if you have any specific concerns!

Limitations to HEPA Filters

Not all HEPA filters are created the same. True HEPA filters can collect and trap most contaminants that are at least 0.3 microns in diameter. That includes almost everything that would cause irritations in the air around you. But things like smells, odors and gases require a different kind of air purifier. Don’t let all of the details and acronyms scare you! Your cleaning professionals have the expertise to provide the cleaning that you need.

HEPA Filter Commercial Cleaners in NH

At NH Cleaning Solutions, we use the finest products that offer the most thorough cleaning. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about our services and what kind of cleaning you may require for your specific space. Our knowledgeable and professional staff is here to answer all of your questions and assist you in any way we can!

NHCS: Commercial Cleaners With a Voice

Monday 8th August 2016
image

Come on in, it’s great to see you here! Watch the floors, we just waxed them.

Let’s get into it–if you’re looking for superb industry insights delivered with flair, you’ve come to the right place. At NH Cleaning Services, we enjoy connecting with our commercial clients in a professional and engaging manner, letting them know that we’re real people with a real passion for excellent cleaning. This blog will be an outlet for sharing our voice, our expertise, and our professional opinions.

A glance at our humble origins

New Hampshire Cleaning Service has always been a family-owned business. We began the company with a handful of commercial accounts, but we had our sights set high. It was our dream to become the definitive commercial cleaning company for the entire New Hampshire and Massachusetts region.

After loads of dedication and some successful marketing over the past several years, we’ve grown substantially closer to that goal. We now service much of Central and Southern New Hampshire, and employ over forty trained staff members, all of whom have prior experience in the cleaning industry

Serving a range of commercial clientele

We typically work with larger commercial organizations and franchises, but we also hold a variety of other accounts including higher education, retail, and state and government buildings. Large office spaces and multi-building complexes are our ideal commercial accounts.

Here are just a few of our many valued clients:

  • NHPR
  • ECCO
  • Canon Copier
  • FBI
  • WMUR-TV
  • American Red Cross
image

Cleaning services, delivered with care and attention

We love developing strong relationships of trust with our clients. In order to provide the most attentive service, we have specific teams assigned to each account. Every commercial client has their own unique cleaning standards, and we’re happy to do things the way you need them done. When we began working with the FBI, each member of our cleaning crew was required to go through a background check and receive full security clearance. So, needless to say, we’ll do whatever your organization may require.

What is the NHCS experience?

In a few words: dependability, efficiency, and excellence. Your locations will be cleaned to your specifications, on time, without complications. We don’t settle for poor quality work, and we stand behind the training, certifications, and capabilities of our multi-talented staff.

Get in touch with us today to learn more. We’d love to serve you. Until next time!
